Paved Paradise

The song ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ questions our relationship with nature and our tendency to overlook the beauty of the natural world, instead we exploit its resources and pave it in concrete.  It reminds us of the importance of nature and the unnecessary facade of the not-so-perfect brick and concrete world we replace it with. I am particularly fascinated in how we display imagery of nature around our homes, hanging pictures of trees in the houses we were only able to build by chopping down and clearing the land where such trees once stood.
